After baking pull out of oven-rim the pan with a knife-let set for 30 minutes, release pan and plate.

Recipe Background

One Christmas I was laid up with surgery and needed to make some additional money-so I sold cheesecakes to family and friends for their holiday parties... You can omit the chocolate chips and use the batter as a base mixture, for Thanksgiving I add 1/4 cup more sugar and 1/2 can of pumpkin and viola-pumpkin cheesecake!
